You always find things in odd places when the movers are around.
I call this one “Table on its side in high traffic area sans glass.”
Cool, but humid this morning. Very sluggish legs again today–it is a recovery day after a hard workout, of course. 3 miles in 29:23:32, for 9:48/mile.
5.68 miles in 48:54.2, or 8:37/mile. 3 mile tempo, target pace: 7:30/mile.
This was my first attempt at a tempo run in a while (one where the “tempo” portion lasted over 20 minutes.) My conditioning is still lacking, and my mental will to finish the 3 mile tempo just about broke down the second half of the tempo portion.
I may need to race to force the issue.
Elevation: +730.1 ft / -725.4 ft / net: 4.7 ft
My return to physical therapy after the MRI results was better than I expected. I’ve run 18 miles in the last four days and I’m more “motivated” to keep up with my physical therapy exercises. We’re reducing the schedule down to 1 time per week, just to monitor progress.
I do, however, need to add a couple of my stretching routines back in.
I also woke up early this morning to do 3.0 miles in 29:30 (9’50” pace). Day 30 of the running streak, day 7 of the physical therapy exercise streak.
A lot of stuff going on here. First of all, my graph. 30 runs in 30 days–no gaps in the graph:
Secondly, I did this last run at 4:55 AM, on the treadmill in the basement of a house that’s not air-conditioned at the moment. It’s warmer in the basement than it is outside right now (70’F, with a dew point of 49’F). I’m finished, cleaned up, dressed for work, and have my Heine Bros Coffee brewed–waiting on the sunrise and my wife to get home.
I also tried out my Superfeet for this morning’s 5.3 mile run. Typical results, similar to my feet and anything with a medial post. I’ll alternate shoes for now and see how things develop.
5.3 miles in 0:51:55 or 9’48″/mile.
When you’re pushing the stroller downhill, you know the wind is working against you. 84° F, Sunny for my run around 1 PM today. It was moderately pleasant, considering the heat. I’m still managing to run about 20 sec ahead of my target pace.
5.2 miles in 50:16.09 (9’41″/mile), streak day 29
Also, I bought Superfeet and Mizuno Wave Rider 11s at Ken Combs Running Store today. The Mizunos fit like a glove, we’ll see how they run compared to my old 9s that I wore four pairs of before moving on to my Saucony Trigon Ride 5s.
Definitely not Live Tracking for race results… before the site went down, I saw the first 5k split time, 30 minutes after it occured. Of course, now the view is:
– Today is Trump family suck up day. (Was Ivanka just asked about real estate investing?)
– Gotta love the insecurity-based advertising from BDO.
– We must in a full force BS bear rally if earning disappointments are sending stocks higher now.
– “Ex post facto?” The correct term is “Bill of Attainder”, in regards to the specific targeting of certain companies’ bonuses.
It was a beautiful, if slightly windy, day outside. 62’F and sunny. I tried a shortened interval session outside in the office park (not for the faint of heart).
I was almost knocked off of the road by a Green Expedition [license plate would be included if I had remembered it] whose driver decided not to wait for the car in front of him and angrily passed while talking on his cell phone–right at the point where I was on the road. I guess the phone conversation and trip to the bank/Chilis was more important than actually paying attention to the road.
…anyway… I managed to get a couple of sub-7 pace 800s in, and a final quick stride at a 6’10” pace at the end of the run: 4.9 miles in 43’22” (8’52″/mile).
